Interview: Vera from Grown To Cook

Vera Greutink is a Dutch gardening journalist and published author who is a relatively new Instagram aquaintance of mine. But I just love watching her images pop up on Instagram or watch her Youtube videos. So I thought she would be the perfect person and gardener to start off my new interview series.

Inspired by: Claus Dalby

Being a very visual person, what first attracted me to his style of gardening was how he put together shapes and colours in his planting, or rather the colours he left out. His planting was so harmonious. In 2004 I had never seen anything like that here in Denmark. Instead it seemed like the gardening world was full of white and red roses, or bright red and yellow tulips.

Inspired By: My Grandfather's Garden

The are many ways to create a garden, and many ways to be a gardener. I have grown up with several beautiful gardens in my life.

In the beginning of the month everything is still mostly bare and all the beech hedges are still brown with last year's foliage. Only my many white tulips light up in the dark. Then the apple blossoms explode for 2-3 days (my favourite garden moment, even more precisous because of how short it is) and then quickly starts to fade, leaving an overwhelming dusting of white petal snow all over the lawn

February 2016

To me, February is - much like January - a month of rest and quiet, but it is also very much a month where I start to plan. On non-frosty days the birds outside have a completely different tune. A tune that sets things in motion inside me, I start to dream and imagine.
